Green chemistry for sustainable development and environment protection
A latest study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the US claims that the source of alarming level air pollution in urban spaces has budged to other Volatile Chemical Products (VCPs), or everyday products such as pesticides, coatings, printing inks, adhesives, cleaning agents and personal care. Such highly sought products contain organic solvents, which are major sources of contaminants called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These facts of study conducted by NOAA are also echoed in a study published in journal called Science. The study published confirms that pollution from chemical products used indoors is usually more dangerous than outdoor pollution. Also a lot of regulatory laws, newer treaties and agreements across globe indicate for alarming situation of steep environmental deterioration. There the paper presented is an attempt to envisage the role of green chemistry in sustainable development through greener processes and products. In this paper an attempt is made to highlight the need and importance of green chemistry, principles that guide and environmental initiative taken so far. The crux of the study is presented in form of suggestions to promote green chemistry for greener tomorrow.
